There is an ongoing debate in the UK regarding our apparent slide towards a US style compensation culture that will sweep all before it.
Most people of a certain age will say: “It never used to happen in my day” Well maybe it didn’t. Maybe in years gone by people really were more resilient and probably more submissive.
Now we are fortunate to have a legal system that – despite its flaws – really does work for the public.
The current compensation system is not perfect but it is far better and far more accessible than it has ever been and that is and extremely positive thing for the UK public. If you do suffer personal injury as a result of another’s negligence then you have the right to make an accident claim for rightful compensation.
The negativity that we hear about compensation claims usually comes from people who have been lucky enough never to require the services of a lawyer in pursuing a personal injury claim. Those who have through necessity, needed to make a claim, will tell you of the positive outcome and much needed help that they received.
The Tories have in the past promoted an initiative based on reducing the “compensation burden” placed on the country by cash hungry accident victims. The initiative was largely ridiculed and baseless. The statistics simply do not show that there is a compensation boom.
Believe it or not there are now less claims being made than there was even 3 or 4 years ago. This is confirmed by official government sources.
